The rivalry between comic book company giants Marvel and DC has been the talk for ages and the rivalry stepped up to a higher level when the two companies started incorporating their comic book stories into movies. When caught up in an interview, veteran actor Samuel L. Jackson weighed in on the Marvel/DC rivalry.
Jackson, who plays the role of Nick Fury in the Avengers in the Marvel movies, was pretty bold on who he thinks is better between Marvel and DC.
“I think there’s room for everyone to exist out here. The fact that it’s not working or doesn’t work, or people want a specific thing, that’s what makes the movies the movies and audiences audiences. Hopefully (DC) will make one of those movies one of these days and it’ll be as big as a Marvel movie,” Jackson said.
According to Cinema Blend, Jackson appears in almost 50 films a year and knows what audiences want from a movie. When it comes to the rivalry, Jackson feels that DC films has not been very successful as much as Marvel in terms of box office and critics.
“Isn’t that a question that people at DC are asking themselves? I don’t think the Marvel people are asking themselves that question,” Jackson said when asked why DC and Marvel movies can’t be good.
Meanwhile, Samuel L. Jackson, however, stated that he’s hoping the upcoming Wonder Woman film will turn out big.
“Hopefully Wonder Woman will be great too, you know. Because a friend of mine trained her (Gal Gadot) so yeah, I hope it’s good,” he said.
